Lady Gaga took to Twitter on Thursday to confirm rumors about her headlining performance at the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show. The news was reported earlier in September, but an NFL representative told The FADER that no final decision had been made about a performer. Previous rumors had pointed to Adele, after the singer said she had declined offers to play the show, but Pepsi and the NFL said they had never offered the British singer the position.
"It's not an illusion," Gaga wrote on Thursday. "The rumors are true. This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA!" Last year's Super Bowl halftime show featured Coldplay, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, and Mark Ronson. The 2017 Super Bowl will take place on February 5 in Houston. See Gaga's announcement above.
